We ended our recent vacation in Paris with a trip to England. Our main goal was to cross the Chunnel in both directions with a pet dog, so we earmarked only a week for the jaunt — not long enough, really, to do more than burrow into a cozy hotel in Kent and take a couple of day trips.… Read the rest
Reader Gail also has a Cavalier (a lovely year-old ruby named Bella), and she sent me pictures and a report from a mid-July visit to Grand Marais, a lakeside village and artist’s community in northeastern Minnesota.
“Grand Marais is about 5 hours from our house,” Gail told me, “and one of my favorite places.… Read the rest
Usually, the subtitle for a Chloe’s Clicks is “this week’s best dog travel links,” but let’s be honest — that “week” gets awfully long sometimes.

This week it’s all about fun places to visit with your dog! Let’s start inland, with a quick article from Doug Gelbert about taking your dog to the White Sands National Monument in New Mexico — I particularly like his suggestion of going for a night hike when the moon is full.… Read the rest
I just love this book! Canine Washington (by Cheryl S. Smith) is full of useful information about “where to play and stay with your dog” in Washington state, and it’s beautifully-organized. Each geographical location is clearly divided into helpful categories: dog parks, hikes and dog-tolerant parks, dog-friendly activities, dog-tolerant hotels and campgrounds, pet stores, doggy daycare and grooming, vets and emergency care, and shelters.… Read the rest
